Skyrim Roars Onto The Nintendo Switch Today

Posted on November 17, 2017 by Rae Michelle Richards

Bethesda has released the long-awaited Nintendo Switch version of 2011’s The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It has been five years since the original release of Skyrim on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 but the Nintendo Switch version does see several improvements from last year’s Skyrim: Special Edition. This means that the Switch version of Skyrim runs on a modified version of the 64-bit Fallout 4 engine and can make use of the system’s full 4GB of ram. As well Skyrim for Switch also includes the Dawnguard, Dragon Born and Hearth Fire DLC add-ons right on the cartridge. 

A few Nintendo specific treats are also available that might interest those who are returning to Tamriel- Link’s Master Sword, Hylian Shield and Champions Tunic from the Legend of Zelda series are obtainable exclusively in this version of the game.  

With the release of Skyrim on Switch every game from the original Nintendo Switch reveal video has been released!😀 


Skyrim Gets Even More “Legendary”

Posted on March 4, 2013 by Joshua Rust

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is one of the best looking games you will find on a console. Probably one of the most massive worlds you will ever roam as well. It’s great to see a game, especially of this size, still getting the support it needs and deserves from Bethesda for the players who are still roaming the land in pursuit of legend, fame, and an arrow in the knee.

So, if you’ve mastered playing Skyrim on the hard difficulty get ready because when the new update launches (sometime soon) it will add a “Legendary” difficulty. In addition to that, you will be able to reset your skills once they reach level 100 (deemed: Legendary) and start leveling them back up again – along with your character level…presumably resulting in an unlimited level cap? Read on for more details.Read More


Skyrim DLC Dated For PlayStation 3

Posted on February 1, 2013 by Rae Michelle Richards

Have you been waiting to learn when you can enjoy Skyrim’s add-on campaigns Dawnguard, Dragonborn or Hearthfire on the PlayStation 3? Wonder no longer, players on Sony’s platform are finally going to get their chance to swing their swords into brand new content, and it will all be 50% off during the first week of availability.

Dragonborn will be released on Feb 12th, Hearthfire on Feb 19th and Dawnguard on 26th of this month. You can snag the house building expansion Hearthfire for $5, while the other two are priced at $20.

I’d recommended grabbing them during the half off sale as there is quite a lot of content packed into Dragonborn and Dawnguard.

Ok, we’re officially to the end of our Skyrim giveaway contest.  MAJOR thanks go out to Bethesda for not only providing the copies of Skyrim and Dragonborn DLC, but for also giving us a shout-out on the official Elder Scrolls Twitter account.  While our site quickly tapped out under the huge and sudden influx of visitors hoping to score the game, we got the word out via our Facebook page as well as our Twitter page.

We had an influx of tweets all asking for either the full version on PC, or the DLC for the 360.  Our Twitter following more than tripled in a very short timeframe!  After counting the number of unique entries, we then used a random number generator to get our two winners.  And without further ado, the winners are….

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim “Dragonborn” DLC Out Tomorrow – New Details

Posted on December 3, 2012 by Joshua Rust

While we are only a few short hours away from the next DLC for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim releasing, that’s not stopping the media from releasing details about it. There are some spoilers to the story, so stop reading if you don’t want to spoil it for yourself. Out of the whole list, there are new Shouts, Spells, Armor, Locations, Houses to buy, and much much more. This looks to be one of the most ambitious downloads that Bethesda has released yet. No release date has been announced for the PS3/PC versions except early 2013, but the Xbox 360 version launches tomorrow for 1600 MSP.

*Note* All of this information has come from a beta tester, so judge it accordingly.

New Shouts

  • Cyclone – creates a small tornado (that is pretty funny to use)
  • Bend Will – force a dragon to fight with you.
  • Dragon Riding – player hasn’t gotten to this one yet.
  • Dragon Aspect – creates the dragon armor from trailer and gives stronger shouts, stronger melee attacks and summon Ancient Dragonborn to fight with you when you get low on health. Can only be used once per day.
  • Battle Fury – like Elemental Fury but for NPCs

Skyrim’s 1.7 Patch Is Finally Coming To Consoles This Week

Posted on August 8, 2012 by Seung Lee

It’s August 8 as I write this article. Why is this little fact important? Well, the latest title update for Bethesda’s Skyrim is version 1.7, and it’s going to be hitting the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 tomorrow. Specifically, 360 Skyrim players from all across the world can expect the patch tomorrow. For the PS3 version, the patch will only be hitting the states on the 9th. The European version of 1.7 will be out the following week.

What exactly does 1.7 do? That’s a good question; it fixes a number of glitches such as general memory and stability optimizations. That’s not all, the 360 version will receive fixes for Spanish, German, French, and Italian shouts. Check out the Twitter announcement regarding patch 1.7 here.

P.S. Still don’t have any info on the PS3 release date for Dawnguard. It’s coming though, don’t worry.
